Easily teach art, even if you’re not an artist.
Homeschooling Art is designed to help you encourage, nurture, challenge, and delight your creative children at home. Kids of all ages and abilities are able to understand real art concepts and techniques. Why? Because we rewrote the book on art.
We took the complex and made it simple. We took the abstract ideas and made them concrete. We took the mysteries of art and made it clearly understandable.
Here are samples of our 3 lesson levels and the Teacher Boost mini magazine.
Take some time to see what you can get. Enjoy!
Introduction to the idea of lines as edges, and oil pastel technique with mixing & blending. Students use a photo of a scotty dog bas-relief sculpture for reference, but it’s turned upside down. This allows it to be drawn more accurately because it’s hard for the mind to interpret. Instead of using known assumptions about what you’re seeing, your eyes have to look more closely.
Artists are introduced to an easy way to make a color palette and the basics of paint mixing. Then they begin the first half of a fun color collage project using a 3-color scheme and cut shapes similar to Matisse cutouts. It’s a great way to get into paint for the first time or after a long break. The work is finished next week.
Oct 8 – 12 • Students will work on a series of very small works each using different combinations of media. There is opportunity for lots of freedom and self-expression, and artists learn to focus on one work at a time while doing many. The small size and having several works in a row, takes the pressure off of each work, so students really enjoy themselves and create some fantastic work as a result.
March Teacher Boost includes 1. Color Schemes, 2. Brain Connections, 3. How to Teach Proportions, 4. Materials: Modeling Clay, 5. a PDF Modeling Clay chart, 6. Upcoming lesson plans
